Hello lovely people out there!
I have been meaning to write a quick newsletter for so many months! I do apologise for not keeping you all in the loop, but as always I am chasing my arty tail and not very good at catching it! 🤣
I have been exhibiting here and there locally this year (please keep an eye on my Exhibitions page here on my website * click on the drop down menu OTHER INFO* as I do try my absolute best to keep that page updated at least!)
Talking of which I was absolutely delighted to have some of my Original Paintings and Sculptures selected for the Greenhill Arts Winter Art Fair in Moretonhampstead which is now open until December 24th. (Open Wednesdays to Saturdays from 10am until 4pm)
Since my last newsletter (back when dinosaurs ruled the world!?!…and to be fair they were probably doing a much better job of it!) I have simply not stopped creating!
Sculptured Spirits and Original Paintings have made their merry way to their new homes around the globe which always makes my little arty heart sing! I won’t show you all of them but here are just a few of my Sculptures that have ‘flown the nest’!
I have a few new Sculptured Spirits available to purchase, please do email me if you would like to see photographs!
I use social media to keep my followers updated very regularly so please DO find me as ArtyMigglet on Facebook and/or Instagram if you wish to keep up with my creations, that really is the quickest and easiest way for you to keep up with me as I am still rather prolific! And it never ceases to amaze me how speedily some of my work ‘finds it’s new owner’!
I really do pinch myself at times, incredulous is probably the best word to describe the emotion I continue to feel having discovered this magical place I tend to live in called ‘ART’! I literally thrive on it and the fact that others seem to love my work too is still a thrill I just cannot explain! 🥰
I immerse myself in my paintings and sculptures, letting the world disappear, or maybe I am the one disappearing inside my creations? It is a safe, magical, carefree, imaginary world I escape to and I truly love it in there!

NEW WORK – SO NEW IT IS NOT EVEN ON MY SITE YET!
I have suddenly rekindled my passion for charcoal this week, especially Derwent XL Charcoal, they really are great chunks of gorgeousness in the hands! And my love of monochrome still holds me in it’s spell!
One of my latest charcoal creations (not on my site yet as she is fresh from my easel)
This little darling was inspired by a thought–provoking photograph of a dear little soul tightly clutching a piece of wood she allegedly called ‘Nene’, her imaginary doll. Her expression hit me really hard, I wanted to say as much as I possibly could with that ‘look’ she is aiming at the viewer, as though we are looking deeply inside her thoughts.
I was inspired by the original image but as always let the work ‘come alive through me somehow’ and changed what felt right, I worked fast and loose too and loved the rawness of the result, the focus purely remaining on one eye, the window to her complex little soul.
Another new Charcoal painting but this time working purely from my imagination. A fascinating process! Once again I worked quickly and loosely, she gradually appeared before me and I was astonished with her raw strength as she came through the charcoal!
This A2 charcoal piece has literally left my easel today! I worked REALLY quickly, I seem to have unleashed a new fast and loose vigour, it just seems to be the way I wish to work all of a sudden and I will let it flow and see where it goes!
I want to work out a way to preserve and protect my charcoal artwork without putting it behind glass as I just LOVE this raw purity and don’t want to ‘hide’ it, so wish me luck!
You know I don’t like to plan or do ‘test pieces’ spontaneity is my middle name! Aka ‘ARRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGHHHHH! This simply HAS to work!’ 🤣
Take care all of you and if you have just read through all this, thank you for still being there!
